Hey everyone,

I wanted to take this time to let everyone know I am doing a live event on TNA Impact this week. So tune in this thursday for an interesting night. Thanks to all in advance for making this event possible.

WWE Backlash Preview

Posted in Match Cards, Show Predictions with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 26, 2009 by biggman621

Here is the Backlash match card for tonight:

CM Punk vs Kane

Chris Jericho vs Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat

“I Quit” Match: Matt Hardy vs Jeff Hardy

WWE Championship Match: Triple H (c), Batista, and Shane McMahon vs Randy Orton, Ted DiBiase Jr., and Cody Rhodes

ECW Title Match: Jack Swagger (c) vs Christian

Last Man Standing Match for the World Heavyweight Title: John Cena (c) vs Edge

My Predictions:

Kane defeats CM Punk

Chris Jericho defeats Ricky Steamboat

Matt Hardy defeats Jeff Hardy

HHH, Batista, and Shane O’ Mac defeat Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes, and Ted DiBiase Jr. – I feel a turn coming.

Christian defeats Jack Swagger – If he doesn’t win, Christian may want to start considering leaving again. This means that Vince won’t let him get any bigger than he is now.

Edge defeats John Cena – I would be shocked if both titles stay on Raw.
